Delay start date for Primary Exit Profile (PEP)

  

The Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) is to be replaced by Primary Exit Profile (PEP) in 2019. That means that the current grade 5 students will be the 1st set of students under this new system.

While PEP appears to be better preparation for the students for high school, it is not at a stage where it is ready to be rolled out. The Ministry needs to ensure that the schools are prepared to deliver this new method to the students. With only 1 year to go before the 1st sitting there is still uncertainty at the schools.

Instead of pushing students who have been prepared from Grade 1 for GSAT into PEP, start it with the younger ones. PEP should begin with the current Grade 1 children, mold them carefully into this system, ensure that the schools are ready. Only then can the teachers properly deliver it to the students and also to the parents who also need to understand it to help their children.
